1969 911 resto quality fasteners?

Hello Forum,

I am finally finishing up my 69 911. It's been one learning experience, that's for sure. I opted for a very fine paint job and now I am reassembling. Thing is, many of the fasteners were replaced by the PO or who knows. I am talking not about the large hex head/structural bolts. I have all these and they were replated and reused where proper. What I need are the self-tapping, Phillips, chrome plated finishing screws for the lights, turn signal boxes, trim caps, hood vent grille, etc, etc. I found this company selling bulk out of the UK, but I was wondering if there is a better solution. Many of the OEM screws are still available through parts houses like Pelican at ~$2.50 apiece, but even those are NLA often. Anybody selling a package or assortment somewhere for these screws?

Michael

I'd suggest Wurth or Eagleday.

When I was doing restoration work on upmarket Italian cars, I used a place in Belmont, California called Global Metrics for that sort of stuff. They have fasteners of every description, as well as that nifty hose with the braided fabric covers, proper European hose clamps, etc. I just checked; they are still in business, but have no website. They also quit publishing their paper catalog. So, they're probably a bit of a pain to deal with, but they have all the right stuff. If you can describe it, I'm sure they can send it to you. Their phone is (650) 592-2722
